One of the things I love about my little sister the most is her honesty. They say that kids are your toughest critics because of their honesty; sometimes it’s helpful, sometimes not so much. For example, when I took this dress out of my luggage Friday and asked her for a hanger from her closet, she looked at me with that 13 year-old face and said, “you’re going to wear pants with that, right?” I didn’t, and she continued to remind me it’s short all day.
I like to think that it’s at least longer when I’m wearing it than it looks on a hanger. I figured that since we were going to her confirmation at church, everyone would be wearing white. We are post-Easter after all. I was wrong, but it wasn’t nearly as much of a disaster as Carrie dropping the Bible from the balcony…
And since you can literally wear anything with this plain white dress (I’ve linked a similar one below!), I chose to go with a hot pink theme. Earrings, shoes and lips all on the same palette, and a pop of lime green from my little Proenza baby.
I’m such a proud big sister and I can’t believe how incredible of a young woman she is becoming. It wasn’t until I saw the picture above that I realize how much of an adult she is starting to be. All I can hope is that she continues to make the right choices and listens to me tell her how special she is!! ❤
